Ball State All-Access visits with the newest addition to the Cardinals men's basketball program, as Joel Godett chats with assistant coach Danny Peters.

Peters, an Ohio State graduate, has spent four years total with the men's basketball program at Arizona. The first three of those came while Ball State head coach James Whitford was on the Wildcats’ staff.

Peters earned his bachelor's degree from Ohio State in 2010. He originally worked as a manager with the Buckeye men's basketball team in 2005-06 before joining the team's active roster as a player for his final four years in Columbus, Ohio. He appeared in 35 games during his career for coach Thad Matta and was a part of three Big Ten regular season championships and two conference tournament titles. The Buckeyes were the national runner-up in 2006-07.

Peters is the son of long-time coach Dan Peters, who is now the director of basketball operations at Akron. The elder Peters, a former head coach at Youngstown State and St. Joseph’s (Ind.) College, is courageously battling pancreatic cancer. Akron developed the 4 Pete's Sake initiative last season, leading programs from the Mid-American Conference and around the country in support of his fight.
